I have over 15 years of experience as a theatre technician, and am currently the lead technician at both Chisenhale Dance Space and TripSpace. As a freelancer I’ve toured internationally running shows in theatres big and small. At both Chisenhale and Trip the Light/TripSpace I’ve learnt to rapidly and effectively light theatre pieces and adapt existing lighting designs.
When it comes to tech-ing performance work one always has to expect the unexpected: Mike has the great gift of being able to troubleshoot, quickly tune into a situation, detect what is needed and deliver it with great care, calmness yet high precision technicality and professionality. I always recommend working with him.Giuliana Majo – Artistic Director of TripSpace London
Working with Mike was an absolute dream. His level of commitment, attention to detail and investment was invaluable. The artists felt valued through Mike’s approach. What I particularly loved was rather than stamping his own aesthetic on everything or finding the easiest solution, he dug deep to truly understand and approach each work and component individually. He contributed to the whole event in a multitude of ways, including the ways you don’t think about yourself. I’ll be running to Mike for anything else I’m doing, that’s for sure!
